just because you have to look for it doesn’t mean it’s not there

…it’s easy to forget that the ordinary is just the extraordinary that’s happened over and over again. Sometimes the beauty of your life is apparent. Sometimes you have to go looking for it. And just because you have to look for it doesn’t mean it’s not there.

God, grant me the grace of a normal day.
~Billy Coffey

Found these lines on Barnstorming, where I so often find beauty, reminders of what matters, and inspiration.
